Carl R & uuml;tti writes about his Stundenbuch: In the early 80s I spent a lot of time at the piano preparing recitals and concerts. It was at this time when I wished to have music like prayers to give a structure to the daily work at the instrument: a book of hours.
I then realised that each time of the day has its own music preference: the early morning asks for joyful singing like birds, the later morning for small and lyric sounds; the hours after noon seem to me very depressive, and the late evening asks for music which combines all the days work in calm fulfilment.
This brought me to write my Stundenbuch, a collection of various pieces.Carl R & uuml;tti was born in 1949 and grew up in Zug, Switzerland. He gained a Solisten-Diploma for piano and organ at the Z & uuml;ich Conservatoire in 1975, and continued his studies at the Royal College of Music in London in 1976.
Since then he has been teaching piano at the Züich Conservatoire and following a career as a pianist and organist. His compositions are mainly a cappella choral music, but he also writes piano works for his own use in recitals.
